Dublin, 18th June 2021 2023 supporting Standards experts and paving the way for the future generation of leaders in Standardisation

Last Tuesday, 15th of June, we held an exciting session in partnership with 2023 to discuss the reinforcement of European presence in international ICT standardisation. Through a total of 10 open calls, the project addresses the ICT Rolling Plan for Standardisation which aims at creating a unique bridge between EU policies and standardisation activities.

During this session, Mr Francesco Osimanti, Project Manager & Vice Coordinator, presented the many ways that 2023 can support experts in Standardisation through its several typologies of funding. He explained that the themes around their calls wish to embrace the “Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness” supported by the Strategic Plan For Horizon Europe.

The positive impact that the project has been causing in experts’ lives since its inception was further demonstrated by Dr Nicolae Paladi, StandICT fellow in 2018 and 2021. His fellowship allowed him to become a Contributor to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and he strongly advised all fellows to start early, participate and iterate. 2023 is a community of experts sharing knowledge, experience, and best practices.

At the end of the session, Assistant Professor Ray Walshe, ELITE-S co-coordinator and chair of the 2023 External Advisory Group (EAG), presented the EUOS – European Observatory for ICT Standardisation a platform to monitor the global Standardisation landscape, providing comprehensive and accurate coverage of the most important ICT Standards, Working Groups and Technical Committees that affect the key ICT topics of the Digital Single Market and the EU ICT Rolling Plan for Standardisation.
